Regardless of what Jimmer Fredette's legacy in the NBA will be, he was a once-in-a-lifetime player at BYU.

Fredette scored 2,599 points over his four years as a Cougar. While Tyler Haws will likely break Fredette's school career-scoring record next season, BYU fans will always remember Fredette's junior and senior seasons.

There were games where Fredette was simply unstoppable. His first huge game was on Dec. 28, 2010, when he dropped 49 at Arizona. Over his final two seasons, he scored 40 or more points six times, including a 47-point performance against rival Utah.

Fredette helped BYU get past the first round of the NCAA Tournament for the first time under Dave Rose in 2010. Then in 2011, Fredette and the Cougars made it to the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since Danny Ainge led the team in 1981.
